Indeed found at the courthouse in Birmingham Alabama; seed shared with us by Hayes Jackson. This vigorous, blue-tinted palm looks to be a relatively stable hybrid between S. palmetto and S. minor. Though not as large growing as S. palmetto, it does form a trunk with large, blue-green leaves. Quick to establish in the Southeast; slow but worth it on the West Coast, unless, of course you live in the Yuma, where it would clip along quite quickly.  It has produced 2 to 3 fronds per year in our Portland garden. 4 year old plants in 6” deep containers.Has recovered from below 0F, upper USDA zone 6; leaves appear undamaged at 10F.
